      • Will it be a holiday in the sun again with a trip to daddys island on the family yacht again?
        Or maybe the big smoke with lots of smashed avacado on toast, lattes, and similar fare. Sightseeing and such. Certainly wont be visiting the posh frock shops as she has no need for them!
        Will Jethro and the nanny be invited, I wonder?

    • My heart is heavy.

      I think Covid Cindy is going to be re-elected. I think the Greens will sneak back in to provide just enough impetus to get the loons to 61 seats.

      I think the absence of policy from the loons of the left will miraculously transform into “we have a mandate from the people” and I believe there is a good chance – 25% – that this will be our last democratic election.

      I watched the first half of Millie Weaver’s Shadow Gate and I had to stop because the internet influence operation that it was about about seemed to describe exactly what we’ve been experiencing since Covid Cindy took office. In the last couple of months I’ve had personal interactions with people I know who are basically sane, kind but overly trusting and I believe the propaganda of the lunatic left has taken hold at a visceral level and enough of the population is so frightened that they really do believe Jacinda is the answer and Judith is Satan arisen.

      I think the two-headed monster of cultural marxism and Covid catastrophism has worked and it has been successful in completely turning us all against each other in NZ.

      I think the focus now is how to avoid the insanity that follows, my head tells me to sell up and escape NZ, my heart can’t bear to even contemplate that as NZ is a paradise on Earth.

      • Yes DP, unfortunately I think she’ll probably get voted back in again too. Not enough voters have seen through her yet. I hope we’re both proved wrong.
        The only positive is that the chaos in the ensuing months/year will well and truly drive a stake through her heart. The damage won’t be pretty.

      • DP I think you are right, especially about the propaganda. We had this confirmed with the poll taken in recent days in Victoria, where the majority ( around 70%) said the lock down warranted.
        I have struggled to understand how so many people have been completely sucked in by the BS and have completely lost a sense of perspective on the virus issue.

  2. One dead after Hurricane Laura causes chaos in Louisiana
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/08/one-dead-after-hurricane-laura-causes-chaos-in-louisiana.html

    Hurricane Laura ripped through southwestern Louisiana on Thursday, destroying buildings in the city of Lake Charles and killing a 14-year-old girl after making landfall in the early morning as one of the most powerful storms to hit the state.

    The hurricane’s first reported US fatality was a 14-year-old girl in Leesville, Louisiana, who died when a tree fell on her house, a spokeswoman for Governor John Bel Edwards said.

    A chemical plant caught fire in Laura’s wake on Thursday morning in Westlake, Louisiana, 4 miles (6.4 km) west of Lake Charles, sending thick black smoke billowing into the sky over the wind-torn landscape near Interstate 10.

    Residents of Lake Charles heard Laura’s winds howling and the sound of breaking glass as the storm passed through the city of 78,000 with winds of 85 miles per hour (137 km per hour) and gusts up to 128 mph (206 kph) in the hour after landfall

  3. Out-of-work pilots to help fill shortage of heavy machinery operators
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/rural/2020/08/out-of-work-pilots-to-help-fill-shortage-of-heavy-machinery-operators.html

    Out-of-work pilots are set to lend a helping hand to the country’s heavy agriculture industry, as the sector faces a shortage of skilled machinery operators in the wake of COVID-19.

    “By matching skills and the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) licences pilots already hold, we’ve found almost 200 opportunities for pilots to put their skills to use with land-based machinery and do their bit for New Zealand’s essential agriculture economy,” Pender said.

    • Um, you obviously haven’t been in the cab of a harvester in a while.
      go check one out.

      The bigger issue for the pilots is paying off their loans.

      But with all the vaccines and cures coming to the fore this pandemeic will be gone by lunchtime and the pilots will be back in their planes if they want to.

      • The big issue for pilots will be having to make actual decisions rather than having it all done for them electronically.
        Computer driven flights are the norm down to Cessnas 310 where pilots just tap in destination to their on board computer and sit back to enjoy the flight.

        Most Ag machinery does not have that option.

  5. People not wearing masks on public transport could be fined $300 on the spot from Monday for as long as New Zealand is in alert level 2.

    The move comes as health officials revealed there are 600 people connected to the Mt Roskill church “mini cluster” which is yet to be clearly etymologically linked to the Auckland outbreak.

    But officials say it is genomically linked to the resurgence of Covid-19 so the city is still on track to shift out of lockdown at 11.59pm on Sunday.

    • Ratepayers are still expected, and are legally forced on pain of losing their property, to subsidise public transport. One if the useless and ongoing injustices imposed by local government on ratepayers. Need a government with the stones to reverse such nonsense when purging the statutes before further impositions are set up.

        • Yes, agree, the government, as is so often the case, is the problem imposing regulations and legislation on local government.

          This ratepayer is over being forced to cover costs on such nonsense and would like to see Local Government NZ stand up more positively against such imposition. I have a suspicion they could do more to resist. The body is not representative in my view and does not have any mandate to suggest, for example, to a Select Committee, that private firework sales should be banned. Getting on and reducing costs for ratepayers would be more useful things to lobby government on.

          • The problem is the meme that Councillors elected on an issue, are then “boxed” to that they must remember that the decision is for “all” people as they are supposed to represent the “all”.
            So even though they may speak against it at a meeting, come out as supporting it.

            That is often pushed into “newbies” constantly, a re-education and sadly most succumb.

            Leadership courses, work shops, etc.. etc.. a constant dripping from all the other bureaucrats that are in that system.

            Sometimes I think just a telephone book, one in so many thousand formula, and give them just max 2 terms, but an overlapping intake, mid term like the USA representatives have.

            Just to try to counter the re-education system, and to gain enough fresh views, and more people who will not be so politicized.

  6. The next shitshow for Covid Cindy. WOF exemption – Insurance claim declined

    Chatting with my local garage while getting my car WOFd’ the other day. They raised a very good point.

    It’s all very well NZTA giving car owners an exemption from getting WOFs during the lockdown, but it seems no one sorted it out with insurers.

    If you let your car’s WOF expire during lockdown, got an exemption and are still driving around without a WOF (because the exemption is still current – you know because you trust the government and they are all powerful and all knowing) well you’d better make sure you don’t have an accident because chances are your insurer will decline your claim due to …. NOT HAVING A VALID warrant!

    It’s true – it’s happening

    • DP ,I don’t think the exemption was actually a recorded thing it was just a blanket exemption whilst in level four, level three allows WOF stations to keep trading and garages as well.
      In my experiences insurers will only decline cover if the vehicle wasn’t up to WOF standards, a lot of people especially older folk do forget about WOFs .

    • Oda – you correctly identify a potential problem for China and if/when the 3 Gorges Dam bursts with 400Million in its path the problem will become acute. In the meantime China has 2 friends – N Korea & Iran who will send their sympathy but nothing else. The USA/Canada/Russia/Brazil & Argentina are the likely large source of protein/grains and China has pissed off USA & Canada and by claiming Vladivostock and half of Krygistan I doubt Vladimir will be friendly, Brazil is racked with Covid and Argentina has no money so unsure were the white knight they may need to rescue them is coming from is uncertain.

  8. Extinction Rebellion prepares large scale protests in London as COVID-19 restrictions ease
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/08/extinction-rebellion-prepares-large-scale-protests-in-london-as-covid-19-restrictions-ease.html

    After a pandemic hiatus, Extinction Rebellion plans to resume large-scale street protests next week in a bid to push for more rapid action on increasingly evident climate threats.

    “Obviously we’re expecting lower numbers than in October because of COVID and because we’re encouraging social distancing,” said Anneka Sutcliffe, a protest organiser, referring to the group’s last major protests.

    She said she expected “thousands” of activists to take part.

    Paul Stephens, a police liaison for Extinction Rebellion, said restrictions on gatherings of 30 or more people mean the group risks heavy fines – though it says demonstrations should be exempt.

    8:10 A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn’t make a snow woman
    8:15 So, I made a snow woman
    8:17 My feminist neighbour complained about the snow woman’s voluptuous chest saying it objectified snow women everywhere
    8:20 The gay couple living nearby threw a hissy fit and moaned it should have been two snowmen instead
    8:22 The transgender ma..wom…person asked why I didn’t just make one snow person with detachable parts
    8:25 The vegans at the end of the lane complained about the carrot noses, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with
    8:28 I am being called a racist because the snow couple is white
    8:31 The Muslim gent across the road demands the snow woman must wear a burqa
    8:40 Three Police cars arrive saying someone has been offended
    8:42 The feminist neighbour complained again that the broomstick of the snow woman needs to be removed because it depicts women in a domestic role
    8:43 The council equalities officer arrived and threatened me with prosecution
    8:45 TV news crew from the BBC shows up. I am asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snowwomen? I reply, “Snowballs” and am called a sexist.
    9:00 I’m on the News as a suspected terrorist, pervert, racist, homophobic sensibility offender bent on stirring up trouble during difficult weather
    9:10 Far left protestors offended by everything are marching calling for my head
    9:29 My kids are taken from me and I lose my job

  10. Comancheros gangster tries to corrupt Mt Eden prison guards with bar tab
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/08/comancheros-gangster-tries-to-corrupt-mt-eden-prison-guards-with-bar-tab.html

    But Corrections said the prison guards didn’t take the bait and alerted managers.

    Corrections then called in its intelligence and integrity support team.

    The intelligence unit tapped prison phone calls and it was discovered that the bar tab, which was left anonymously for the guards, had been orchestrated by a prison inmate.

    RNZ understands the prisoner was a member of the Comancheros gang and the Corrections Officers targeted worked at Auckland’s Mt Eden prison.

    “When Corrections staff were socialising at a bar outside work hours, a bar tab was anonymously left by a member or members of the public for Corrections’ staff use,” she said.

    “Corrections staff did not use the bar tab and departed from the location.

  11. Hundreds of millions of dollars set aside to secure COVID-19 vaccine for New Zealand
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/08/hundreds-of-millions-of-dollars-set-aside-to-secure-covid-19-vaccine-for-new-zealand.html

    The funding is in addition to the $37 million COVID-19 vaccine strategy announced in May, and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been talking to her counterparts in Germany, Canada and Australia to ensure New Zealand gets a good deal.

    “I’ve been talking to a range of world leaders about global vaccine development, including Angela Merkel, Justin Trudeau and Scott Morrison,” Ardern said on Thursday.

    “We are working particularly closely with Australia to ensure we are connected to all parts of vaccine development, distribution and use, as well as our Pacific neighbours to elevate their voices.”

    The hundreds of millions of dollars will come from the $50 billion COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund, but it is not part of the $14 billion kept in reserve for a rainy day.

  12. From the Herald:
    “A disproportionate number of rangatahi leave school after completing NCEA Level 2 to go on to level 3 certificates at PTEs [Private Training Establishments]. Unfortunately those that do will earn significantly lower wages by age 25 than those rangatahi who stayed longer at school,” the report said.”

    Why substitute functional English terms with a Te Reo term “rangatahi”? The only justification would be that “rangatahi” symbolizes concepts that are absent from the English term “youth” or “young person.” (As an aside, I wonder if “rangatahi” is a real Te Reo term or one fabricated in Wellington?)

    Perhaps a better translation, in the context of the article, for “rangatahi” would be “neph”? Perhaps “rangatahi” has the nuance of “one of ours” that “youth” does not.

    It’s like the policy of the Herald is to gradually replace common and ordinary English words with Te Reo ones in much the same way that the state and local governments replaced the Kiwis of many Auckland suburbs with newcomers. Is “rangatahi” a newcomer? Will we ever see our “youth” again?

      • English will gobble up foreign words when no suitable substitutes exist.
        “Sushi” is a great example of an English loan-word from the Japanese. (“Loan” my arse. English ain’t never gonna give “sushi” back.)
        Many decades ago, I read a translation of a Japanese text in which the translator had rendered the term “sushi” as “balls of vinegared rice with raw fish toppings.”
        (puke!)

        Unless “rangatahi ” has so many complex layers of meaning and nuance that render the English term of “youth” to be misleading, then why inject this unfamiliar and foreign term into the text?
        I know! It must be virtue signalling by the Herald!

  13. Greens wil destroy New Zealand… I read this else where but I think its worth posting.

    “well farmers are battling to stop the abrurdity of some of the govts proposals.
    the main ones are the cropping on 10+degree slopes and a rigid plantback date.
    some farms literally dont have a slope less then 10degrees! Not only that but the flatter the paddock the higher risk of pugging due to waterlogging.
    a logical aproach would be have differing buffer zones of ungrazed ground on slopes eg. 0.5m per degree, I beleive environment southland had this type of thing in their land plan before the govt went and steamrolled their years of hard work and progress.
    Plantback period is retarded as its weather dictated! Every farmer wants their paddocks back in rotation and generating income asap, a dry year theyre replanted early but a spring like last year here in southland and many struggled to even get moving prior to oct/nov it would dry enough to get on the paddocks a few days and then turn wet for weeks.m

    this is yet another CoL assault of farming and nzs backbone and with little thought put into it and just a blanket aproach that will likely do more waterway damage then current practices, yet more rules made by some twats in an office in wellington that dont have a clue!”

    Most of the idiots making these rules have never stepped on a farm….

  15. Read the Sentencing Judgement for Brenton Tarrant. Is is a good read backgrounding the names, injuries and some details of those murdered and wounded by the murderer. It shows the depth of wisdom and experience of the sentencing Judge and the careful process followed to determine the sentence.

    The Judge notes at p 177 the Court needs to be proportionate and in my reading it was.

    The great issue for me is that this event was the work of one man with evil intent. Aside from the terror and anguish inflicted on the Muslim Community, and that is carefully and sensitively covered by the Judge, the matters reflect the man acted alone and had carefully planned his murderous rampage without regard for those killed and injured.

    There is a vast gulf between this and the average New Zealand hunter, farmer doing pest control or any sports shooting or weapons collecting that may go on every day in New Zealand. Yet the Government, while expecting the Court to act in a proportionate manner, did not do in response. The Arms act amendments rushed through were not even slightly proportionate. They over reached and over reacted. They abused democratic process and absorbed funds and Police time. They offended a lot of law abiding citizens.

    That level of offence will not be forgotten when I am in the ballot box. None of the coalition parties can hold their head high on this aspect of this traumatic matter for our country.

    • Well put Pete. In leftist politics ideology trumps pragmatism and in their rush to impose their will on the people honesty and due process appear have been taken out by “collateral damage” which is rapidly becoming the hallmark of this government. I wonder if they ever hark back to the good old days of 2017 when Jacinda promised us the most open and transparent government ever? The only thing they appear to have got right is not wasting a good crisis, but even then their shear laziness and ineptitude is haunting their every move. You don’t wonder if something will go wrong, you just wonder what will go wrong next. This is why most of them couldn’t hold down a real job and why we desperately need to get rid of them at the election while we still have something worth saving. Remember everyone, say no to the ho!

    US Ambassador Scott Brown blasts headlines claiming he skipped quarantine as ‘lies’
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/08/us-ambassador-scott-brown-blasts-headlines-claiming-he-skipped-quarantine-as-lies.html

    “We are in total isolation in accordance with any rules and regulations of New Zealand,” he said.

    He blasted headlines which claim he has skipped quarantine as “a lie”.

    “I don’t mind you know, people questioning it cause I think that’s legit, but to lie about the headline and say I’ve refused to do X, Y and Z when actually we have been more than accommodating and respectful,” he told The AM Show.

    Brown says one of the reasons he has chosen to isolate at home is his role as ambassador forbids him from accepting money from the Government.

    “We should do everything at our own expense which is what we’ve done with other representatives of my team,” he told The AM Show.

    “It’s an embassy residence with 12 foot walls and guards so I’m not going in or out.”

      I saw the hideous vitriol sprayed in Stuffed and RNZ as an anti Trump article by ex News of the World churno, Vance.

      Of course News of the World, which was headed by Piers Morgan and employed trash like Vance, was closed down 10 years ago following expose if it’s disgusting practices including hacking into the voicemail of dead British servicemen.
      That is how Andrea Vance rolls.

      Trashy Vance is trying to link Scott Brown to Trump then denigrate and suggest Brown is in the wrong and ..of course… this links back to the Bad Orange Man.

      I suppose it is just what filth from closed down N.O.W. does these days.
      CEO of Stuffed is another mad Irish bitch- Sinead Boucher.
      Squawking Oirish birds of a feather….

  17. NZX down for fourth day in row after repeat cyber attacks
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2020/08/nzx-down-for-fourth-day-in-row-after-repeat-cyber-attacks.html

    The site first crashed on Tuesday evening but was up and running shortly after. However this was short lived as it went down again on Wednesday morning then a third time on Thursday.

    Professor Dave Parry, from the AUT department of computer science, calls it “a very serious attack on critical infrastructure in New Zealand”.

    The repeated attacks signal a big problem, he said on Wednesday.

  18. Related to the Kenosha shootings…. https://www.foxbusiness.com/technology/facebook-kenosha-guard-militia-vigilantes-kyle-rittenhouse

    Facebook once again censoring views it does not like.

    Now the truth of the shooting will emerge, it is dividing the USA as the right se it as self defence, the left as a mass murder. I have viewed quite a few of the clips…. My initial reaction was self defence, although I can’t be certain about the first shooting. Just glad I don’t live there……

  19. Where did the Tweedledee & Tweedledum political parties start in the USA.
    A part of understanding our selves, so we too can build to turn around here in NZ politics.

    One of the most damaging aspects of the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the first Republican president since the onset of the Great Depression, was his refusal to challenge the basic premises of the [Democratic] New Deal.
    That’s how we got into this fix. ….

    ….. his guiding philosophy:- …..
    …. build up a strong progressive Republican Party ….
    …. meant that both parties endorsed a rapidly expanding federal government, higher taxes, and more state interference in the daily lives of Americans. …..

    Will Trump’ changes and effect stick?
    This in part explains where the detour occurred, and so shows the choices to make to get back on track.
    How much more off a battle will be ahead?
    In part how does it figure that Trump initially was more of a Democrat.
    Did he have a change of heart? understanding?
    In a way we can see in that article as an ex President, Eisenhower had a belated change of views.

    A good insight to gain an understanding of the choices and pathways that NZ has taken.
    What will it take in NZ to make the public change their “progressive ways” of dream time.

    “Every frumpy middle aged, middle class New Zealand woman’s favourite pin up boy is turning into a bumbling goof-ball. Yes he has a lot to do, but if he wasn’t prancing in front of the camera every day doing Kelvin Davis’ job as the #2 in the Labour Party, perhaps he could concentrate on his real job. One that he coins more than $500,000 to actually do.

    Labour should be transparent, Kelvin should take one for the team and they should just put Bloomfield at #2 on their Party List. He is no longer a neutral public servant, he is Jacinda Ardern’s little puppet, human shield and has in his own right become a complete media wh*re. “

    • Thanks for posting rol, bastards. Has this come from the police or is it another of JAG’s authoritarianism against drivers and their vehicles? A little over the speed limit is not the problem, it is those who do not drive safely.

      I see Ed has put up a new poll on this topic.

      “The current police anti-speeding campaign will never lower the road toll, because it’s targeting the average motorist rather than the high-risk groups.

      “That’s like trying to stop bank robberies by targeting shoplifting.”

      He said it was actually quite hard to maintain a steady speed in modern turbo-charged cars.

      “As soon as you take your foot off the accelerator, your speed drops right back.

      “As soon as you accelerate, it’s very easy to be over the speed limit in seconds.

  23. Coronavirus: Taxi mask rules ‘absolutely illogical’, make ‘no sense’, drivers say
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/08/coronavirus-taxi-mask-rules-absolutely-illogical-make-no-sense-drivers-say.html

    Taxi drivers say a sudden rule change around mask-wearing doesn’t make sense, and they’re struggling to get answers from officials as to the logic behind it.

    “To me it seems to be absolutely illogical that only a driver needs to wear a facemask,” John Hart, executive director of the NZ Taxi Federation, told Newshub.

    “If it’s considered that the inside of a vehicle has the potential to spread the virus, then surely it must be a requirement that everyone inside a vehicle wears a mask. It just makes absolutely no sense to us that only the driver has to wear a mask.”

  24. This is a long but very interesting read about the virus helping the elite do the big “reset”

    https://off-guardian.org/2020/08/28/the-covid19-scamdemic-part-1/

    The author has NZ worked out.

    “The New Zealand State has already decided to remove people from their homes and place them in quarantine facilities (detention centres controlled by the military).

    With an estimated population of 5 million and just 22 alleged deaths from COVID 19 in the entire country (a population mortality risk of 0.0004%), and no deaths at all for nearly three months, clearly these measures are not a response to any genuine threat from COVID 19.

    Having complete control over the testing and attribution of disease status affords the biosecurity State the power to potentially remove and detain its political enemies and dissenters without trial. Those ordered to enforce biosecurity, in the “new normal,” have exactly the same degree of authoritarian power that was invested in similar rights abusers such as the Gestapo and the Stasi. Does history ever teach us anything? “

    • Thanks Ross, an interesting while troubling read. I have been uneasy with moves by this last weak and poorly performing government and the tendency to set process aside for ideology. The tight group attempting to run things while not managing through and the shutting down of alternative views at times.

      I am not comfortable with the current attempted control level. I do not see the situation justifying the control while not convinced they have any strategy to get past this point.

      The coming election is important.

    • Too late James. I abandoned the Greens long ago as they abandoned common sense and the environment. They went overboard as Social Justice Warriors with Marama Davidson surely costing votes by the day. Refugee ex Manus Island being supported in attempting to hoodwink us while the truth was obvious to all but the Minister of Immigration. Backing Hamas was a low point. Getting Oil and Gas shut down while supporting the Waka jumping legislation. The list seems endless.

      None of the local candidates give me any confidence. It is a lost cause James. Your school handout was a final straw. Your party is gone on credibility for me. I think you should resign

  27. Last election saw the Green’s fat useless trougher, Metiria Turei, resign after the launch of the Green Party’s 2017 election campaign. Turei admitted to benefit fraud over a period of three years in the early 1990s, stating that she had not disclosed to Work and Income New Zealand that she was accepting rent from flatmates.

    This year it’s James Shaw’s turn as he squanders $12 million of taxpayers’ money on a Green school after standing in front of a group of communists bleating about how hard done by teachers & pupils in state schools are.

    Their fiscal ineptitude is breathtaking. Their arrogance is on a par.

    “Shaw wouldn’t comment on whether he was attempting to get the funding pulled – but said requests for that to happen had been made to him by unions, teachers, principals.

    Robertson has ruled that out however, saying the Government was obliged to honour the agreement.

    “My view is that the Government has a good faith obligation to the people that have applied and been told they have received money.”

    So Labour is endorsing and supporting the Greens here, but Hipkins wont give Catholic schools money that is legally theirs. Fuckers.

  30. Japan’s Prime Minister Abe Set to Resign

    Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has told the country’s ruling coalition that he is set to resign, amid a great deal of speculation about his health issues in the past weeks. He will be an incumbent prime minister until his successor is elected.

    Abe said the decision to step down had been spawned by worsening health issues, as his chronic ulcerative colitis recurred, standing in the way of “making right government decisions”. The outgoing prime minister went on to note that he hadn’t meant to “cause trouble by resigning suddenly,” Jiji quoted him as saying.

    • Shinzo Abe is only 65, but he has had a couple of longer-than-usual hospital check-ups, and he looks ver pale and ill. I don’t think he will live all that much longer. Ulcerative colitis is a nasty imune-response disease of the bowel, the exact cause of which is unknown.

      Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga has emerged as a leading contender to succeed Abe Shinzō as president of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party and prime minister of Japan. I prefer Foreign Minister Kono, but he is relatively young and has too many enemies.

    “I’ve seen how they do the [nasal] test and they actually jam the thing pretty much the whole way up your nose. It’s not happening.”

    Wheeler says part of his refusal to open his door to anyone is because his meals have kept showing up at his door cold.

    “It’s chicken and stuff, so that’s obviously not too good,” he said.

    As he only started barricaded himself in his room on Friday, he doesn’t believe the staff at the Commodore Hotel know what he’s up to.

    “But they will soon know once I’m not ordering food,” he said. “I won’t be taking any food or anything.”

  34. “For centuries Christianity treasured the great commandment of love and mercy as traditional truth without recognizing it as a reason for opposing slavery, witch burning and all the other ancient and medieval forms of inhumanity. It was only when Christianity experienced the influence of the thinking of the Age of Enlightenment that it was stirred into entering the struggle for humanity. The remembrance of this ought to preserve it forever from assuming any air of superiority in comparison with thought.”

    –Albert Schweitzer, Out of My Life and Thought
